what yo’ name iz? amber valetta, stella tennant, kristen mcmenamy,
daphne groenveld, behati prinsloo, patrick o’donnell

as a explosion of a cover series, a couple covers a day have been circulating the fashion blogosphere this past week. shot for i-D’s latest cover series, three icons & three new faces hit the newstands through the lens of craig mcdean, paolo roversi, josh olins, daniel jackson, matt jones, alasdair mclellan the cover series exudes this feel of 90’s to me. it could be the use of color, the simplified styling or even the icons who were cast. i like that while other publications have taken it up a notch, i-D has opted to scale things back. while i usually prefer greater bouts of glamour, i appreciate the opposition this go ’round. the relaxed feel of spring is mirrored beautifully on the casual aspects seen from each cover.

runway video: fall calvin klein womenswear collection

fall collections, new york: altuzarra

urban refinement is how i would describe the FW11 collection presented by joseph altuzarra. luxurious use of fur was seen on the collections coats as models walked the runway in sheer tops, larger than life parkas, argyle & satin gowns. interesting design was seen in the collections dresses, it was chaotic but still sexy- very interesting. a wide range of basic colors was used for the collection palette as shades of grey, brown, red, white, neutral & black were seen with a bit of gold undertones. equipped with a red statement lip & catlined eye daphne groenveld opened the show as karolina kurkova, karmen pedaru, arizona muse, joan smalls, toni garrn, jacquelyn jablonski, jourdan dunn, frida gustavsson, karlie kloss, magdalena frackowiak, hanne gaby odiele, fei fei sun, jac jagaciak, ashley smith, constance jablonski, liu wen, sigrid agren walked leading to kasia struss, who closed the show. a beautiful collection of daring design that allowed sophisticated pieces to become urbanized through styling.

fall collections, new york: jason wu

stunned completely, the jason wu collection presented in new york was american couture. incredibly refined down to the last thread, jaw dropping by cast- every aspect of what a runway show should be was seen in this collection. im am beyond astounded at what was created by wu this season, given my initial hesitation at his development early on. wu’s interpretation of sophistication is at it’s peak this season as refined use of lace, metallics & feathers are seen. an all star cast including an opening daphne groenveld that followed sigrid agren, karmen pedaru, ming xi, rose cordero, hanne gaby odiele, fei fei sun, liu wen, jacquelyn jablonski, alla kostromichova, valerija kelava, lindsey wixson, anais mali, barbara plavin, frida gustavsson, joan smalls & karlie kloss with a final look worn by ms. jourdan dunn. based on design aesthetic alone, this collection is a clean cut winner- the cast drives that victory to the next level. the collections palette consisted of black & soft neutrals, with shots of blue, red, yellow & grey coats which were seen at the entrance of the set. i love, love, love this collection & am standing on my feet in applause for the vitality that is seen displayed as the vision of jason wu. new york fashion week just keeps getting better & better- this collection, is the best of the season thus far. an astounding show of sharp tailoring & gorgeous gowns.
